The young Melbourne-based entrepreneur Nick Bell and wife Fei are selling their Sunshine Coast holiday home he bought around two years ago.

Bell, who has a net worth of over $100 million having founded a number of start-ups, spent $7.6 million on the 2014-built home in the gated Beaches estate on Sunrise Beach.

He's only had the keys for 18 months but is now seeking $9.95 million after modernising the interiors.

The state of the art oceanfront terrace over two levels comes with a garden courtyard with resort-style pool with a 25 metre lap lane and a water slide.

It has four bedrooms, a home office, a Swedish sauna and a five car garage, which has been described as feeling more like a showroom.

Tom Offermann Real Estate selling agent Milan Markanovic, who sold Bell the home, is marketing it again.

Bell told the Weekend Australian the appeal was its beachfront access.

"It's quite rare, as is land and a house of that size. It was great for the family and one of the best beachfront blocks around," Bell said.

"Plus it had a waterslide - that sold me straight away. I'm a massive kid really... it wasn't for the kids at all, it was for me."

Nick and Fei have been based overseas in recent months, managing the expansion of their latest tech ventures in to Asia and South America.

They've only been to Sunrise Beach twice since January.

Bell founded WME, his first digital agency, with $400 in 2008 from his bedroom.

He sold it for $39 million in 2017, billed as one of the largest digital marketing agencies in the country.
